paperback, sent by the publisher, thanks!
Another book by an indie publisher and author (who just happened to get his degree at University of Washington and lives in Seattle, the best city in America). The premise of The Summer of Long Knives is a good one. It's 1936, and police Kommisar Rolf Wundt of Munich is ready to walk away from the Nazis and from Germany, taking his wife Klara with him. Wundt had earlier solved the case of the serial killer known as the Dresden Vampire, and he's a good cop. There's just one more case left for him to solve before he flees, that of a murdered little German girl found at a farmhouse belonging to the family Epp. But, just like in the real world, things do not always go as planned.
Since this is a crime novel, or at least one that begins with a crime, you can find the rest of the story over at the crime page of this online reading journal.
